MUNICH. The winners of this year's mobile phone clip competition "Ohrenblick mal!" ("Listen a sec!") have been announced.

The competition took place for the fifth time already and is organised by the JFF - Institute for Media Education in Research and Practice in cooperation with LizzyNet and Jugend Online and supported by Telefónica O2 Germany. The motto of this year's competition was "Nah dran!" ("Get close!").
Within the scope of "Ohrenblick mal!" young people between 12 and 25 years of age across Germany get the chance to shoot short and inventive video clips on their mobile phone and present them on the internet on The winning clip "recording" was created in fine arts lessons and shows a normal day from the perspective of a mobile phone. "The makers managed to put daily perspectives into an exciting and short story captivating the audience by good camera angles", says jury member Günther Anfang from the JFF.
